If I was tall enough To reach up to the gates of the afterlife
I'd hold them open with one hand And touch your soul with the other.
And if I believed In a heaven where angels get sent when they die
Your trail would lead straight there With tracks none could cover.
But I feel weak, and I feel heavy, I feel like I'm tied down to Earth already
I am faithless, and I've found, it's hard to reach Heaven with your feet tied to the ground.
Maybe, I'm crazy
But I want to believe that your soul could be free
Maybe, you'll come back and save me
'Cause I try and I try but I can't learn to fly
And I know if you tried my feet would come
If I was strong enough To stand with you in one place
I'd hold your body with mine And touch my hand to your soul.
And if I was sure That you would return someday
Then I wouldn't be so afraid of letti
